I got this collection recently also. I played a little bit of Ico, and the girl character can be a pain in the butt to get her to do what you want, but what is nice is that you can use a second player to control her which helps out a lot. what i have played of it so far is pretty cool, i never got a chance to play it when it originally came out, and i have been playing a lot of other games recently at the moment and use this as my chill out game and play a little bit here and there from time to time. As for SoTC , I never got to play that when it first come out either, and havent played that part of the collection yet either, but really looking forward to it when i finish with Ico. I think its great that they are releasing some of the collections the way they have been recently.
